An odd one

This one came to me by an odd route. Ella from NBN had this enquiry, I think from a youngster.
I'll reply if anyone can get close, doesn't hurt to encourage even if it's not Diptera.

Re: An odd one

I reckon, despite the fact that I can't be sure about the number of wings, that it's one of many species of solitary bee that are black, and very difficult to ID even with a specimen.

Thanks Nigel.
I've replied suggesting iSpot, Steve Falk's Bee book + Flickr & BWARS website.
Not a win for recruiting young Dipterists - but you never know.
